Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 9th Edition
December 2013, ©2014
Building on the extraordinary success of eight best-selling editions, Callister's new Ninth Edition of Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties.
This new edition has an increased emphasis in active learning and includes more coverage of Nano-, Bio-, Smart, and other Modern Materials. It incorporates new, up-to-date solved examples and practice problems that reflect current technologies, current materials, and real word scenarios. In addition, the Virtual Materials Science and Engineering Lab (VMSE) has been updated and Camtasia videos have been added.
The text is fully supported by WileyPLUS, an integrated online learning environment that contains the highly respected Virtual Materials Science and Engineering Lab (VMSE), a materials property database referenced to problems in the text, and new modules in tensile testing, diffusion, and solid solutions (all referenced to problems in the text).
